Tanium Recognized for its Strong Company Culture on FORTUNE's List of the "100 Best Medium Workplaces"

Global cybersecurity leader recognized for a mission-driven and customer-focused culture fueling its rapid growth

Emeryville, Calif., October 18, 2018 – Tanium, the platform for business resilience, today announced that it debuted 55th on FORTUNE magazine’s annual list of the “100 Best Medium Workplaces” for 2018, according to global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work. Tanium was selected among hundreds of companies competing for placement on the list and distinguished itself from peers based on employee ratings of their workplace culture.

The results found that Tanium ranked highly with its employees in the categories of co-worker trust and teamwork, dedication to customer success, ability to make an impact, and pride in the company. In addition, many employees cited the company’s team-oriented culture, its passionate and talented people, and transparency from leadership as major benefits of working at Tanium. The company also gives all employees equity, rewards performance that aligns with the values, and is committed to offering ways for employees to give back in service to their communities.

“Tanium has been on a mission to give the world’s largest enterprise and government organizations the unique power to secure, control and manage millions of endpoints across the enterprise,” said Tanium CEO and co-founder Orion Hindawi. “We are incredibly honored to be recognized among the great companies on the FORTUNE list based on feedback from our employees.”

“It’s our dedication to this mission, our customers, and each other that makes our company special, and is the driving force behind our continued growth and success,” continued Hindawi. “We’ve embedded teamwork, trust, transparency, and agility into our culture, creating an environment where employees feel empowered to make a difference for our customers and the company.”

“This an exciting day for us at Tanium as we celebrate being named one of FORTUNE’s 100 Best Medium Workplaces,” said Bina Chaurasia, Chief People Officer at Tanium. “Recognition as a great place to work is a tremendous achievement for our employees. We know that people come to work at Tanium and stay here because they are inspired by our mission and want to be part of our culture in which teamwork, integrity, and an unstoppable spirit make up our core values.”

Tanium continues to be in a position of strength uncommon for companies in the security and IT space and earlier this fall raised $200 million at a $6.5 billion valuation. As of January 31, 2018 (fiscal year end 2017), billings grew by well over 60%, while Annual Recurring Revenue was up over 80% from the prior year. Net renewal rates for the largely subscription-based business were in excess of 150%, highlighting the value proposition for customers as well as the team’s dedication to customer success.

“When it comes to revenue growth and innovation, the 2018 Best Small & Medium Workplaces continue to outperform their peers making these companies more competitive and helping them secure their position in the marketplace,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “What these companies do differently than their peers is that they offer a great workplace for all employees, regardless of role or personal traits.”

Tanium currently employs over 800 employees globally and continues to hire around the world. They are looking for smart and tenacious people who are inspired by the values and mission to help some of the world’s largest enterprises achieve business resilience.
